X2 Conference attracts over 400 participants

Apr 14, 2018
The annual X2 Conference was held in Hua Hin, Thailand from 24-28 February, 2018 with - according to the organisers - over 400 in attendance to celebrate the fifth anniversary of X2 Logistics Networks.

Nicknamed the X2 Beach House, the Dusit Thani Hua Hin served as the venue for the 1:1 meetings. There was also a welcoming X2 Pool Side Meet & Greet to break the ice; a festival-like Mad Hatter’s Garden Party; and a spectacular Gala Dinner followed by the creation of Club X2 that transformed a 1:1 meeting room into an exclusive club with lights, smoke, and a well-known DJ behind the turntables.

Over the course of the event over 12,500 1:1 meetings were held. One of the participants, Juno Weng, Overseas Director of AIF Global Logistics said, “This is my third meeting. I’m really impressed with the meetings this time because they have been more productive than last year - and I had a great time!”

X2 encourages open networking by creating social events to help break down barriers. X2 Group Founder & CEO Richard Overton said, “The X2 Conference is an experience and that’s what we want it to be. When people are having fun and enjoying themselves their real personalities come out and you get to really know your partners and potential partners. It’s easy to hide behind presentations in a meeting hall but much better to show your true self at a pool party, a festival with hot air balloons, and exclusive ‘pop-up night club’ while having fun with new friends.”

Dean Locke, Director of Royale International had this to say about the conference: "A big thumbs up to the X2 Group. A sensational four days in Hua Hin of alternative networking. I cannot stress enough the exceptional quality of the overall event both from a business and a social standpoint. Team Royale are looking forward to 2019."

X2 brought in five hot air balloons from the opposite end of the country as the centrepiece of the Mad Hatter’s Garden Party to emphasise the event’s theme of ‘Rising Above’. Clearing the use of airspace wasn’t an easy process, as special permissions were required from the Thai authorities. At the event, the balloons proved to be a breath-taking site and attendees thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to get into the baskets for stunning aerial views.
